Lockyer's Middle School

Safeguarding

Lockyer's Middle School is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare, both physical and emotional, of every pupil both inside and outside of the school premises.  We implement a whole-school preventative approach to managing safeguarding concerns, ensuring that the wellbeing of pupils is at the forefront of all action taken.  We expect all staff, governors, volunteers and visitors to share this commitment and maintain a vigilant and safe environment.  It is our willingness to work in a safe manner and challenge inappropriate behaviour that underpins this commitment.

The Designated Safeguarding Lead is Mr M. Legge and there are three Deputy Designated Safeguarding Leads, Mr R. Ettling, Ms F. Locke and Mrs K. Whittaker. You can contact the Safeguarding Leads through the school office on 01202 692779.  The Academy Committee member with responsibility for Child Protection is Mrs E. Turner.

All members of our Safeguarding Team have had specialist training in Safeguarding and Child Protection.  All staff at Lockyer's Middle School are trained in Safeguarding children, have regular Safeguarding training and understand their role in protecting children.

Kelly Overhill is the Safeguarding Officer for Wimborne Academy Trust koverhill@wimborneacademytrust.org
